We Need to Know if You Regularly Wake Up to Jaw Pain
Posted on 8/25/2019 by Woodland Hills OMS
If you wake up every morning with jaw pain, you might accept it as something you have to deal with. You may try to think of what causes the pain, but you do not always go any further with it. Instead of living with the pain or discomfort, you may want to think about what you could do about it. One of the things we recommend is coming in to see us. It is very possible that would could find a solution and offer you relief from your morning jaw pain. Causes of Jaw Pain There are several reasons for jaw pain. For some people, the jaw pain is the result of stress in their life. There is not a lot we can do to help with that, but there are other causes where we can offer relief from the jaw pain. Many people suffer from TMJ disorders. These affect the joint, nerve and muscles that connect the jaw to the skull. Problems in this area can lead to pain in the jaw. Another cause of jaw pain is misalignment of the teeth. An overbite or underbite can cause you to change the way you move your jaw when you eat and speak. That can lead to pain. Most people think that an untreated cavity will lead to pain in their teeth. It is also possible that the pain will radiate down to the jaw, causing pain in that area. For someone suffering from an impacted wisdom tooth, the pain can become overwhelming. It can affect many areas of the mouth, including the jaw. Visiting Our Offices The good news for people suffering from pain in the jaw is that most of the causes have some type of treatment available. Problems with a cavity or impacted wisdom teeth require a little work, but once completed, the pain should go away. The overbite or underbite may require a little time to fix, but it is fixable. TMJ has a few causes, but with the right treatment, it is possible to manage the condition. All it requires is a visit to our office. For more information about this or any other oral health issue, contact our office to schedule an appointment....
